Wow, I just spent over an hour reading a 10 page thread, some great advice in here. I think I over prepared for my upcoming 1L year. I read so many different books that they all seemed to contradict each other. It seems like every law graduate that writes a manual or preparation book knows that all entering law students are scared and will pay $25-$50 for anything they think might help.
Do I have your permission to just print this thread, bind it, and sell it next year?
Once again, thanks to all the former 1Ls, you helped clear up some of the notions I had (i.e. - I was going to be studying from 7am to 11pm, whats better IRAC/LEEWS, outlining, class notes, etc.)
I will report back on how everything went, and also when I publish this thread, each will receive their royalties.
